daily writing habit

Daily Writing Habit

So, as some of you who have read my recent ruminations may know,
I have decided to blog every day.
Not because I have so much to say that I need to publish something every day,
but because by making my writing public every day,
I have made a commitment to a daily writing habit.
So, barring any unusual circumstances like no WiFi,
family commitments or
sheer exhaustion,
I am blogging every day.

Sometimes I am stuck for a topic to write about.
Sometimes I want to write about topics
that could get me into trouble if I made them public.
Sometimes I forego my instinct and do it anyway.
At other times, I walk along a long and narrow path.

All this is to say that I am pledging
to write at least 100 words a day.
Furthermore, I will add 10 or more words to my total goal every day.
If I’m going strong, why not keep the momentum going and up the ante?
My objective is to eventually write 1,000 words on a daily basis.
But, that would now become more than just a blog post.

To round out this idea even further,
I am going to invite some students to spend 10 minutes writing
at home every day, too.
 I can’t wait for this journey to begin!

And, just for the record, before I started writing  I had already written 187 words. So, maybe I need to move my goal to 250 or 300 words. Every. Single. Day.
